NEW signing Fraser Fyvie is targeting promotion to the Premiership with Hibs after agreeing a six-month deal at Easter Road.

The Hibees swooped for the former Aberdeen midfielder last night as he joins Keith Watson, Martin Boyle, Tomas Cerny and Franck Dja Djedje as January signings at the club.

Fyvie, who returns north after a two-and-a-half year spell with Wigan Athletic, told the Hibs website: “I’m really pleased to sign for Hibs – as soon as I heard about the opportunity it excited me.

“I was keen to head back up to Scotland and Hibs are a club going in the right direction, so everything about this move made sense.

“My first goal will be to earn a place in the starting line-up and then I want to help Hibs to achieve promotion.

“I can’t wait to get started here at Hibs and I’ve been really impressed with the manager’s vision for the future.”

Head coach Alan Stubbs was thrilled to lamd the former Scotland Under-21 internationalist.

He said: “We’re absolutely delighted to be able to add Fraser to the squad – he is a young player with tremendous quality and potential.

“It’s a great opportunity for Fraser and we’re delighted to give him an opportunity to be a part of what we’re trying to achieve here at Hibernian.

“His arrival underlines our ambitions to kick on; it strengthens our squad and adds extra competition for places which will enable us to finish the season as strong as possible.

“Overall, I’m delighted with the business we’ve managed to complete during the January transfer window and Fraser’s arrival is another signing that I believe will excite our fans.”
